Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier was strapped to a backboard and carted off the field after suffering a back injury early in Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Shazier rammed his helmet into receiver Josh Malone's thigh. He immediately reached for his back and wiggled both arms into the air. His legs did not appear to move after the hit.

Teammates took a knee in support of Shazier as medical personnel tended to him.
